Tracking Hurricane Ian – Sept. 28

Hurricane Ian strengthened into a Category 3 hurricane as it battered western Cuba early Tuesday morning and is forecast to intensify further, likely reaching Category 4 intensity on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale as it emerges over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico and heads toward Florida’s Gulf Coast.

Ian reached major-hurricane status (Category 3 or stronger) Tuesday morning at 2:30 a.m. Eastern time, then made landfall two hours later in western Cuba at 4:30 a.m. Eastern with maximum sustained winds of 125 mph.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis urged Floridians to take precautions and declared a state of emergency for all 67 counties ahead of the impacts of Hurricane Ian. Some mandatory evacuations were ordered Monday in the Tampa Bay area, and Tampa’s airport was set to shut down at 5 p.m. Eastern time on Tuesday.
